11 Moments From 'City Of Lover' That Reminded Us Taylor Swift Is The CEO Of Melting Our Hearts
ABC

Taylor Swift, yet again, gave the Swifties something they didn't expect, but of course love(r)d.

Sunday night, Taylor Swift's "City of Lover" special aired on ABC which was full of behind the scenes secrets, first live performances of her album "Lover," and the scoop behind a lot of her new songs. If you haven't watched the hour-long special yet, you can see it on Disney+ and Hulu!

These moments from the show really just made us remember why we love Taylor Swift oh-so-much.

1. Taylor's gratitude.

Taylor starts every concert showing such sincere, incredible gratitude to her fans and everyone supporting her. It's not just a "thank you guys so much for being here, I love you." She puts so much heart and love behind everything she says, and it shows.

Can you tell I'm a Swiftie yet?

2. The songs she sang acoustically.

Taylor decided to sing some of the songs that she hasn't sung before from "Lover" acoustically because that was the way that she wrote them. There is NOTHING better than when one of your favorite artists takes artistic control of their music and performances to give their fans something SUPER special.

3. "The Archer" performance

"The Archer" was already such a beautiful song, but it's always an added bonus to hear the extra pieces that make it so special to Taylor to make it even more beautiful.

4. "Death by a Thousand Cuts" acoustic. 

This song was originally a bop off of this album, but Taylor singing it live and acoustic gave it a new sound and meaning.

5. "Cornelia Street" acoustic.

There was so much passion behind this performance and you can tell how much it means to Taylor, which, we all love.

6. Taylor's interactions with the audience.

Taylor really interacts with the audience in a way that makes it feel so intimate and personal. She knows how to connect with her fans more than any celebrity fan base I've ever seen.

7.  Her vocals.

Taylor's acoustic performances during this concert strip down the bells and whistles showing how talented and beautiful her voice is essentially on its own. Also, she's the one playing the instruments with the stripped-down performances so, the musicality is all in her hands and voice, absolutely incredible.

8. "Daylight" acoustic performance.

"Daylight" does not get enough love on "Lover" because a lot of her other ones took the spotlight, but this acoustic performance brought it back to the surface to get the appreciation it deserves.

9. The sass and joy  during "You Need to Calm Down."

Taylor has been very clear on her stance on same-sex marriages preaching that love is love and equality is essential and this song and performance reiterates that.

10. Taylor declaring her favorite song off of "Lover."

Yes, it is "Lover."

11. The matching guitar, guitar pick, mic, and mic stand. 

So much "Lover" pink, such a vibe.

12. The snippets of Taylor behind the scenes preparing for the concert and enjoying Paris with her band. 

You can tell that she and her band are close which makes her performances that much more special.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
